Presidents Cup




A US Youth Soccer National Competition


The South Texas Presidents Cup is an open entry competition that is strongly recommended for mid to lower D1 and Super II teams.  Mid to Lower level Division I teams are typically defined as teams that did not qualify for State Cup.  The competition is open to Under-13 (U13) through Under-20 (U20) boys and girls teams who played in a Fall 2016 STYSA sanctioned league, and will play 11v11.  For 2017, the U17 and U18 age groups ("U18" referring to teams with their oldest rostered player born AFTER August 1, 1999) will be combined, since the Presidents Cup Regional and National events will also be a combined age group. Teams currently rostered with at least 1 player born BEFORE Aug. 1, 1999 will not be eligible for the combined U17/18 age group. The U19 and U20 teams will play in a combined age bracket, designated U20.  South Texas Presidents Cup state champions in the U13-U17/18 age groups will represent South Texas at the US Youth Soccer Region III Presidents Cup, with possible advancement to the National finals.

2017 Entry Fee: $600 (includes all competition costs, including advancement to Regionals / Nationals)

Registration Instructions

  1.  Check the District Seeding list that applies to your team and register for the Cup your team is seeded in.
  2.  If your intent is to try and qualify for a higher Cup than the one your team is seeded in, you will also need to select the Open Bracket Registration link and register for that Cups' Open Bracket. Both registrations are required! Please review the Open Bracket Document.
  3.  The following is for WESTERN DISTRICT teams and DDL U11-14 teams: Since Leagues will be playing games into April, it may not be clear which cup your team should register for based on your current league standings. Please follow the below instructions:
    •    Register for the Lower Cup. For example: If, based on your Spring results, your team could be seeded into Directors Cup or Presidents Cup, you would register in Directors Cup. If your team could be seeded into Presidents Cup or State Cup, please register for Presidents Cup. The State Office will work with the specific leagues to identify accurate seeding and will move teams into the Cup they are seeded in after final standings are established.
    •    Extremely Important - If your team's Seed and Cup are dependent upon Spring results and your intention/desire is to play in the Higher Cup, teams will need to register for the Higher Cups' Open Bracket as well. Teams must be registered in the Open Bracket by March 1st in order to be. If your Seeding/Cup is currently not identified and based on Spring League Results (and your intention is to play in the higher Cup), your team would register for the Lower Cup and also the Open Bracket of the Higher Cup.
